Rihanna Channels Her Inner Southerner For "Sweet Home Alabama"
Posted by Videoson 07/12/2011 at 5:15 PM
Fresh off a scare at this weekend’s Dallas show, Rihanna quickly returned to her LOUD tour to give back to those in Alabama who have been victimized by the slew of devastating tornadoes this year. What better way to honor the hallowed land on which she performed then by busting out “Sweet Home Alabama” (surprisingly enough, “Empire State Of Mind” was not the first anthemic, locally-inspired diddy to jump up the charts) while writhing atop recently displaced fans in the name of hometown pride? (That didn’t happen. She’s a Southern-by-way-of-Barbados-Belle, remember?) While RiRi has not shied away from rock music at her live shows before, covering the classics is something we have yet to see. As is restraint (she’s clearly asking herself, “What would Scarlett O’Hara do?”). And in a rare moment of such, there was not a single lap dance in sight. Does Skynyrd not get her in the mood?
